If you are a fan of rodeos, then you need to attend the Hopkinton State Fair’s Rodeo Show! The Rodeo Show offers an exciting experience for the whole family. Hold on to your hats as the ladies race against the clock on their horses during the barrel racing contest. Cheer on the amazing cowboys as they compete and ride on 25 of the best buck’n bulls (many of these bulls compete at nationals in Las Vegas) in the country. Children will laugh as the comical rodeo clowns show off how talented they are at distracting the bulls. A high-energy announcer and specialty acts throughout the event ensure there will be no dull moments during the Rodeo Show!
